Finally home!

Just as the title suggest, I’m back in town and ready to do some writing! These past two weeks have been awesome and I’m excited to share some stories about where I went and what I was up to while I was there.

For now though, I’ll be taking the time to try and compile images, links, and the best stories to tell about my travels. In the meantime, here are some of the places I’ve visited over the last few weeks:

  • Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin (Bachelor party!)
  • Kansas (camping)
  • Colorado (Rocky Mountains and camping)
  • Utah (Canyonlands and camping)
  • Arizona (The Grand Canyon and camping)
  • New Mexico (Camping)
  • Oklahoma (Camping)

So get excited! I’ll have plenty of insight on the places I visited and the shenanigans that took place.

P.S. If you’re looking for up to date content, make sure to follow me on social media. I frequently post new images on Instagram, interact with followers on Twitter, and relay new information on my Facebook. I’ll also continue to post new fiction and writing prompts as I update the blog as well.

If you would like a preview of some of the blogs, check out my friend’s Instagram page here. He took over 500 shots from our road trip and can give you a peek into some of the places I’ll be writing about.

Update On….ME!

Hey everybody, so I just thought I would just do a quick post today to give an update on me, myself, and I. It will basically cover what I’ve been working on and why there haven’t been as many posts as I usually do.

So to start things off, I would like to let everyone know that if you have the time and energy, I will be doing a book signing of A Monstrous Tomorrow in Peru, Illinois. Details are listed on my Facebook page. The event will run from 1-3:30 with yours truly doing a reading from the book (which story is still being determined) along with a Q&A session after. There will be a limited quantity of books for sale and will run $10 a piece. Please bring cash or make sure to try and get your copy of the book through Amazon ASAP.

Next order of business is the sequel to A Monstrous Tomorrow, or as it its known on this blog, A Book Has No Name. As it stands, I’ve only written one chapter since the last time I gave any information on the book. As a reminder, it will be a full length novel and not a collection of short stories this time around. It will feature one of the characters from A Monstrous Tomorrow, so if you’re interested in the second book of The Forsaken World Chronicles, I highly recommend reading A Monstrous Tomorrow.

Besides the book, there are two other projects I’m working on. One is entirely under wraps but let me just say, when it’s done, everyone will fall in love with it. The other is of course, Pantheon Productions. We have backtracked a bit and began filming short creative pieces again and look forward to getting those out to the public soon. In the meantime, I am continuing to try and strive towards making our three fiction towns feel as real as possible.

I believe that is it for now. As it stands, my focus over the past two weeks was first vacation and now my book signing. After this weekend, my focus will return to solely the blog and only my writing projects.

Make sure to come back tomorrow because I can guarantee there will be a new fiction piece up for everyone to enjoy!

Weekly Update!

Hey everyone! Just thought I’d do a quick, non-creative blog post today to just generally talk about some things. So yeah, I’m just going to get right down to it.

First off, I just want to say thank you to everyone that has bought a copy of my book, A Monstrous Tomorrow, I’m grateful beyond comprehension, beyond words, beyond anything imaginable. You get the idea. So simply put, thank you.

If you haven’t heard as well, I will be doing a book signing in Peru, Illinois on September 8th. If you’re interested in the details, they can be on found  by clicking here. I’m also considering adding other places and dates, so if you know somewhere that would like to bring me in or would like to see me in your area, comment and let me know!

As always, once you finish reading the book, make sure to head back to Amazon and leave a review. Don’t worry, I will not be upset if it’s a bad review either. Any kind of commentary on it will help further my development as a writer. If you don’t wish to leave a review on Amazon, you can also help out by reviewing or rating on Goodreads as well. It’s easy to set up an account on there and if you’re a book lover, it’s well worth having.

Finally, I know I have people reading this blog from various media outlets. So I figured what I would do here is just share the various social media outlets I have and extend an invitation out to everyone to begin following them and explain generally what I use them for.

So obviously I do have this blog and for anyone that reads it off of other social media platforms and enjoys the content, I invite you to follow this page. By doing so, you’ll receive an email every time a new post is made, that way you never have to miss out!

Next I have my Facebook page that is simply Ty Noel. This is what I consider my official business page at the moment. It is here where all my official business as an author can be found.

I also have a twitter account with the handle TyNoel. It is here where I tend to discuss writing, my passion for the Bears, and just other things I find funny. I can also be found on instagram at TyNoel91 and I will be honest, that mainly has pictures of anything that is around me at the time or of my dog. He’s pretty cute and pretty much the only reason to follow my Instagram. I have also set up a ko-fi account as well, where donations can be made to help with basic things like paying for advertisement or getting new equipment.

Well I believe that about does it for this post. Thank you for reading, thank you for being supportive, and of course, enjoy the weekend!

P.S. my book is FREE if you have Amazon Prime, which if you do, there’s no reason you haven’t read it yet! So get out there and read that copy today!

Update: Where Have I Been?

Hello all!

Let me first start off by giving an apology for my disappearance over the last two weeks. As I sit here and write this post I realize that there hasn’t been anything posted in the last two weeks so I thought I would just give an update on where I’m at and what I’m doing.

First and foremost, if you haven’t heard yet, Kylee and I recently made a big move to Champaign. It’s been pretty exciting and I personally can’t wait to explore this town and see what all it has to offer. That is essentially the main reason for my mini hiatus. We spent a bit of time getting things packed up, then of course moving it, and then finally going through the usual long and boring process of unpacking. Now that we’re settled in however, I plan on getting back to writing and posting content daily.

During this off-time however, I had been thinking of how I’m going to format this blog. The first week where I wrote about millennials for a few days was fun, but I don’t believe having a weekly theme is going to be as great as I initially envisioned. Instead, I want to be more hands on with my approach. I want to be able to reach out to my audience and see what YOU, my readers would like to see each day. My plan is to ask each morning for a topic to write on and if I don’t get any responses, so be it. I’ll find something myself. No matter what though, expect some new work to be coming your way each day.

One thing that will stay the same from my initial idea is giving free creative content each week. When I started, I had one creative piece entitled “The Old Man and the Millennial,” which if you haven’t read it yet, give it a look, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. Much like my regular blog posts, I will crowd source during the day to see if anyone has a particular story, setting, plot, etc, they would like me to take a swing at. My goal is to try and do this every Tuesday and Thursday so if that’s all you want to read, keep an eye out for it then.

Finally, since my primary writing style is creative writing, I thought I may share just a tidbit of what creative work I’m currently doing. The big project that I’m taking on, with the help of my buddy Jurgen, is an expansive YouTube universe. I’m currently in the process of writing several scripts, which we hope to continuously film over the next several months. We even started our own page and production group called Pantheon Productions, and if you like the page this week you’ll get to see a nice introduction video that will go into greater detail of what we’re working on and what to expect.

So that’s it for this post. If you have any questions or ideas for my next post, feel free to get at me on this site or on my Facebook or Twitter. Have a great one everyone and expect some fun things to head your way!
